Shiny sims

Since the patch, my female Sims are becoming shiny, like this:

Is there an easy fix? I thought it might be related to tan lines.

[This discussion was created from comments split from: Updating CC to Support Tan Lines in Island Living.]

Edit: Updating the specular for each piece of cc worked for me. Other people have solved the problem by running game graphics on high.

    That looks like a CC skin that needs an update, perhaps?

    Surprisingly, it's just regular Maxis skin.

    I have seen people posting that they are getting weird shiny sims with 3D eyelashes as well.
  • RouensimsRouensims Posts: 3,226 Member
    Oh, thank you! Almost every one of my Sims have 3D eyelashes.

    Strangely, my Sims aren't shiny today, so maybe it was just a temporary glitch. :smile:

    I was literally just trying to find a solution to this, almost panicking even! Thank you!
    (Can't start a thread so explaining here, sorry..)
    So, this started a few hours ago when deleting all my mods (not cc) to make the doors work again... Then I probably accidentally deleted something "important" and it made it bug.
    Should I just pray for this to be gone by tomorrow since there doesn't really seem to be a way to fix it :(

    Re. the doors, the mod causing that has been updated but is one that can't be named in the official forums because of the game rating.
    For mods and CC that *can* be named here, head to https://forums.thesims.com/en_US/discussion/960932/broken-updated-mods-cc-island-living-june-2019-patch

    https://photos.app.goo.gl/anGDsNRg9v1yZG476Half of my sims are glowing like this, so many cc clothes can't be broken :open_mouth:

    BTW.: How can I normally post pictures here so that is not only a link?

    Some of my sims are shiny, but all over their body, hair, EVERYWHERE. I dont know how to fix it. even after taking off all skin details and hair its still doing it.
  • VikimicikeVikimicike Posts: 65 Member
    After changing CC clothes the shining stops for me, so I am afraid that a lot of clothes cc are broken.
  • RouensimsRouensims Posts: 3,226 Member
    This is very sad. I love cc clothing.

    It's mostly Alpha CC that's broken. Not sure if it'll work for updating that CC for that problem, but there is a Sims 4 Studio update.

    I'm pretty new to Sims 4 Studio on Mac. How do I use it to update broken Alpha CC?

    Okay so somebody helped me. They said if you go to game options, you can change the sim graphics. Don't click on graphics! Click on where it says "Sim" below it and pick very high. It got rid of the shininess.
  • RouensimsRouensims Posts: 3,226 Member
    Unfortunately, I already have them set on the highest setting.

    hi! i also have this problem with shiny sims and i discovered that some of the older alpha cc hairs cause that. i have my game updated to the latest patch and setting games graphics to the highest settings doesn't help so does anyone know how to fix this? i don't want to get rid of these hairs, they're one of my favourites :(

    They probably have no normal map or a messed up specular map.

    My shiny sims problem was in the CC lipstick and not in the clothes! Fortunately not all CC lipstick was broken. Just deleted the CC lipstick from the modfolder. Problem solved.

    Me and my brother have the same glitch but kinda different. Always with the vampires pack, there's always a male teen sim with the scouting outfit and he is VERY shiny. Will post a picture as soon as i'm a member. -Doggers

    I'm finding more and more shiny CC. :(
    I've heard a lot of comments about the scouting outfit. Even though it's not CC (to the best of my knowledge), I'm wondering if it's broken.

    it could be from sims wearing cc accessories when my sims wear the scouting outfits, accessories from their Everyday wear stays on

    I have a weird issue with one of my shiny Sims. I've tried removing each piece of CC, and she just keeps being shiny. I've tried changing her clothes, and I've tried removing her facial details, makeup, hair, and accessories, but nothing is helping. It's my poor Sim in my avatar. :(

    Maybe it's the skintone or an eye colour that is not among facial details?
  • VikimicikeVikimicike Posts: 65 Member
    Just to add, I set the sims' graphics to very high and some of the shinyness dissappeared!
